DEMENTIA

A generalised deterioration of cognitive functions such as memory and language due to a variety of causes. Should not be confused with age-associated memory impairment that is less critical to daily function.

DEMENTIA: "Dementia is seen as a loss og cognitive abilities and not associated with age."
